Proposed Regulations to Punish and Silence Faith-Based Counselors

Do Not begin punishing licensed counselors for helping patients overcome their unwanted sexual feelings by affirming biological realities concerning male and female

This regulation stifles licensed professionals’ free speech rights, with the direct consequence of denying patients their basic right to direct the objectives of the counseling they seek.  It also sets up an obvious double-standard.

This regulation is clearly wrong, dangerous, and unconstitutional, but ideologically-driven.
